briefing from martha's vineyard, deputy spokesman josh ernest called for restraint and con demtd the violence. >> the united states strongly condemns the use of violence against protesters in egypt. violence will make it more difficult to move egypt forward on a path to lasting stability and democracy. >> and just a short time ago, secretary of state john kerry joined the condemnation but said he believes there is a path forward. >> the path towards violence leads only to greater instability, economic disaster, and suffering. the only sustainable path for either side is one towards a political solution. i am convinced that that path is, in fact, are still open and it is possible though it has been made much, much harderer. >> and in a sign of how difficult that path has become, just hours ago, egypt's interim vice president mohamed elbaradei a nobel peace prize laureate resigned in protest. there are reports that eight top political leaders of the muslim brotherhood have been arrested. as the muslim brotherhood calls for more protests the government says none will be allowed. let
's kristin welker in martha's vineyard, nbc's michelle kosinski in cairo. i want to get a sense how closely we know the president is following this back and forth over the plan he introduced on friday. already we noted senior republicans are criticizing him, warning his plan could account an actually slow anti-terrorism efforts. >> as you mentioned, this is a working vacation. his national security adviser susan rice is here with him on martha's vineyard. he's getting briefed regularly on a whole host of topics. including, you would have to assume, the ongoing debate about his government surveillance programs. as you point out, republicans -- they really went after the president, arguing that he hasn't done a good job of explaining the program. that is why there are these problems really getting the public on board, and will worry that ultimately it is sort of draining and limiting his ability and the government's ability to fight terrorism. so that is what republicans have been saying. democrats, he's getting some criticism from them as well. some democrats essentially saying that they sti
's martha raddatz. let me go back to richard engel, my hero over there. what is the sense of people over there in terms of one to ten concern? from what i've been pulling together on this, this is really big. people really think something's going to happen. is that the feeling in cairo and that part of the world? >> in cairo, people aren't really focused on this at all. cairo is in the middle of its own domestic problems. there are protests in the streets. the muslim brotherhood was thrown out of power in a coup. john mccain and others are in town, trying to work out a settlement. it's the end of ramadan. people are fasting all day long. so no one was really talking about this. we went down to the u.s. embassy today which was already a fortified compound. there are tons of concrete piled along all of the side streets leading to the embassy. they've been there for about a year when people tried to storm inside the embassy. remember, there was that offensive internet movie that mocked the muslim prophet muhammad. since then, the embassy has already been in a degree of lockdown. mostly it h
obama has been watching this unfold while on his vacation on martha's vineyard. the president today gave his first public remarks, condemning the violence on both sides. >> while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning we notified the egyptian government that we are cancelling our biannual joint military exercise scheduled for next month. >> the president referred to the change in power in egypt as the military's intervention. there's another word that could be used to describe the act of a military overthrowing, a democratically elected leader and installing a new government in its place, a coup, but will you not hear anyone in the obama administration use that word. if they did call it a coup, the law dictates the u.s. would have to stop sending aid, specifically $1.5 billion in annual aid to egypt. so the state department has decided it simply will not decide. >> the law does not require us to make a formal determinatio

on martha's vineyard facing questions how his administration will handle two vital concerns to the nation. internationally, there's still a question of how america should respond to the violence against protesters in egypt as well as reports that the military-controlled government may soon release former dictator hosni hugh barak from prison. we'll have more in just a moment. but first, the president returns as d.c. and the nation prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic march on washington for jobs and freedom. half a century later, the questions about race and criminal justice raised by that march still face the country. including in the form of controversial stop and frisk programs. a federal judge declared new york city's programs unconstitutional last week. however, at a news conference on a major gun bust today, new york city mayor michael bloomberg again stood front and center to defend the practice. >> generally, it's believed by law enforcement people that without this tactic, the bad guys would feel a lot more comfortable in carrying guns. common sense says if y
